Starting June 1, Google expanded it’s speedy on-demand delivery service Google Express to Texas.
Currently, shoppers in Dallas, Houston, and Austin areas can now take advantage of overnight delivery from the following merchants:
- Barnes & Noble
- Whole Foods Market
Additionally, Google Express also offers two-day delivery through these merchants:
- Guitar Center
- Vitamin Shop
- Sur La Table
- Ace Hardware
- Treasure Island Foods
- Roadrunner Sports
- Bed Bath & Beyond
- buybuy Baby.
We noticed these Google Express listings showing up in the Product Ads (PLA) section of the search results pages. Notice that in the outlined listing, the merchant appears as ‘Google Express’:
Members of Google Express pay either $95 for the year or $10 per month. For non-members, delivery starts at $4.99 per store. This appears to be a move by Google to use Google Express as a way to compete with Amazon and other online shopping sites that offer similar same-day delivery services. If you were wondering how/when/if Google would respond to other same-day shipping services, such as Amazon Prime, look no further than Google Express.
